Loving the mundane

Posted in

Love should be experienced. Let me explain. We can say we love a job. What does that mean? I believe it has to do with the joy you receive from the work you do as well as the passion you have for engaging in it. Without love, life is rather mundane. Jennifer Williamson once said, “Even the mundane turns sacred when love is there.” She’s right.

Do you ever find yourself taking your daily routine for granted? You don’t “love it” and actually you “hate it.” Lately, I’m choosing to let life’s monotonous nature drive me deeper into my day-to-day relationships whether with God, my family, or myself. Love changes everything. Look at how the Psalmist expresses his relationship with God. Talk about passion!

Psalm 36:5-6  “Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.  Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep.” He is declaring that God’s attributes are worth expressing. God’s attributes are set in the context of His love. 

Let the Psalmist’s words sink in. You just might not look at mountains, justice, others, your work or your relationships the same.
